After changes in NCAA rules, Reggie Bush reinstated as Heisman Trophy winner


Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. In 2005, USC's Reggie Bush received the Heisman Trophy, the award for best college football player. Then an investigation found Bush had received several thousand dollars and a car. He forfeited his trophy because the payments were against NCAA rules then. Now players may profit from their name and likeness, making far more money than Bush ever did. And that is why Bush has now received the Heisman back. It's MORNING EDITION.
